Dalgona Candy

Original Recipe


Do not use cane sugar — it will not melt properly and you will be left with fully solid sugar crystals.

How to Make Dalgona Candy


  1. 6 tablespoons of white or brown sugar
    A pinch of baking soda


  1. Measure out six tablespoons of sugar into a small saucepan.
  2. Over medium heat, slowly melt the sugar until the crystals have completely dissolved.
  3. Once the sugar has dissolved and turns amber in color, take the saucepan off of the burner and throw in a pinch of baking soda. Do not go overboard with the baking soda—too much will cause it to taste bitter.
  4. With a ladle, wooden spoon or some chopsticks, stir the mixture until it becomes a fluffy texture.
  5. After mixing in all of the baking soda, quickly pour the mixture onto a greased sheet pan, or one lined with parchment paper. If you’re using popsicle sticks, pour the candy onto the stick.
  6. As it is cooling, quickly press a cookie cutter on to the candy. The deeper the indent, the easier the game is to beat.
  7. Finally, once it is completely cooled, play the game and whatever you do, don’t lose.
